  1. How does Affinity handle updates, in the past I just moved the program folders and the software worked, but the updates didn't recognise the software was installed and was trying to do it fresh... I ended up just uninstalling and reinstalling and have found that it kept the layout & studio presets, I assume they've been linked to my account, not sure though. It's also kept all of my assets and stuff included
  2. See this topic is still rather active, posted about the same thing myself. Would definitely love to see an *.ico export feature integrated. Not sure why people assume that because the software is vector it can't be used for icons, nor why just because they are currently stored as a .dll file, doesn't mean people aren't making icons for their own use, or wanting to do things their own way. Affinity isn't strictly commercial use only, so if there's still support for a feature despite the "industry standard" not using/requiring it, although later replies seem to suggest it may still be
  3. Is the only way to move the installation location of the Affinity suite to uninstall and reinstall with the new path? If so, are the Studio Presets kept when it's uninstalled or would I be better served to screenshot the layouts of the suite so I can relay the software when it's installed? Thanks,
  4. Not sure if there's a reason that software don't seem to allow exporting to *.ico, but if it's possible, it'd be nice to be able to export directly to an ico file type. I'm going to guess that there's a logical reason this isn't done yet or it probably would of, but will put it out there maybe I'll find out why it doesn't seem to be a thing softwares export to instead of needing to convert jpgs.
  5. It'd be nice if you could access the Photo menubar when switching to the Pixel Persona, primarily for the Filter menu option, or somehow able to access this menu and any others that are in Photo.
  6. I've created something I am reasonably happy with, however despite making the pixel layer a child layer of the main front, it still exports with a 'foggy' feel around the outside of the stone, is there a way to remove this?
  7. Hi all, I don't need to add an extreme amount of detail, but what would be useful methods to add some of the texture detail of a stone, to what I've made to help make it look closer to the image I am working off of. But just to make it seem more like a stone and have more of a depth than it currently has. Thanks!
  8. Hi all, Having purchased the mystical lights collection along with a couple of others, and reading the licence agreement just want to clarify one thing. Does it breach the licence agreement to use the mystical lights overlays in work that is to be sold as a PNG to someone? The way I read the agreement, I assume the answer is yes, but just wanting to clarify. TIA.
  9. Just wondering if anyone knows what would be causing this? I am using Designer When I press CTRL+G to group all the layers, the text moves completely off screen - never had this happen before when I group items, so not sure what to check. The only thing I've done different to when I've used Designer before is using the "Draw stroke behind" for the order, which I can't imagine would do much to affect things. Images below show exactly what is happening, all I do is try to group the layers, it happens with the hotkey or right clicking to group. TIA.
  10. Quick question, with AI/PS you can do simple animations, am I correct in my belief that none of the Affinity software supports this kind of work?
  11. Sorry, I am actually using Designer, and 'reduced the workspace' is just the wrong choice of words, or not using better software words - primarily because I am still very new to using Affinity and just used the words that came to me naturally. I did go through Document settings and configured it that way, but also since found that I was likely working off of the *absolute minimum* pixel requirements too
  12. I did think that 98px was insane, but was going off of what was in front of me on their site, since going back after sleeping and working I've now found the sizing you've got
  13. Hi all, Just trying to work out a couple of things. Firstly, why has the quality of my image once exported and then uploaded to Youtube as a display picture loses all quality? Youtube guides say to make it 98x98, I reduced the workspace to 98x98px, resized my object with 'scale to object' enabled and exported it as a png at the same pixel size, but when I hit upload on Youtube, it comes out as screenshotted below. Any suggestions? TIA - Aussie
  14. Is it as deep of a rabbit hole as Youtube is at 2am when you just click "one more compilation video" for the 74th time? To be honest, creating a colour conversion spreadsheet would be for the fun of it, because I'm a nutter who loves creating spreadsheets, so I'm down to grab onto Alice's hand and jump down the rabbit hole
  15. Damn, I was looking forward to doing a complicated spreadsheet. What would the buzz words be to look into proper conversions with ICC profiles? Or would it just be that "rgb to cmyk conversion with icc profiles" And his picture is definitely blurred to me too
  16. I definitely knew there was a major difference between the two, and knew that CMYK is typically used for print work, I use to work with an older gentleman who worked in lithography, and was very verse in CMYK colour spectrum. I have too noticed that using the green of the attached image colour code, it is far duller when using the CMYK code, which while at the moment while I am just fiddling around to work out how things work isn't a big deal, but as per my other post where I was trying to change the colour of a lightning PNG (as a part of a brush set purchased on the Affinity store) the
  17. Hi there, I realise this question isn't specific to Affinity's products, but it is related to my usage of Affinity, so I hope it's still reasonable to post here as I think the Affinity community may have someone who knows the answer/s These questions come in relation to a previous topic I have posted here I have a 2 part question (with images attached) for someone who may know colour theory, are these formulae something that can be put into an Excel spreadsheet so that I can create a spreadsheet that will convert colours from RGB -> CMYK, and other colour conversions
  18. Thanks, I have gotten it to mostly work, just need to work on CMYK vs RGB colouring.
  19. Hey there, I have tried using adjustment layers and directly changing the layers, but can't seem to change the lightning brushes (imported png files). The closest I have gotten, is creating a shape, rastersing it to a mask and making it a child layer of the lightning - which while it doesn't change the colour does fade the lightning. Any suggestions?
  20. Hi there, Just wanting to know if this is intended or not, but when you lock layers within a group, but not the group itself, the entire group can still be moved as one object, not just the unlocked layers within it when the group is selected. Attached is something I'm working on, and as the screenshot shows, the dirt mounts around the tombstone are locked but the tombstone itself is not, but if I select the group in the layers menu, and move the selection it moves everything in the group, not just the tombstone, which I thought it'd only move the unlocked layers in the group.
  21. Hi there, I have looked at other posts, but none seem to be able this kind of effect, although one was close, linked below. I am wanting to create the impression type effect, like shown by the key impressioning below, with the blackened shape of a controller in the second image. I have tried using emboss and 3D fx's but didn't achieve the effect. I have tried to look up on Youtube for how to create an impression, but as expected the results show reviews and first impressions of the Designer software. Edit: I am currently looking through blend modes as well
  22. Thanks for your suggestion, in the process of trying to follow it, and having received the Designer workbook today as well, I ended up finding that making it the child layer and then setting the blend mode of the child layer to "erase" achieved the result I was looking for. Thanks for your suggestion though!
  23. Hi there, Just wondering if there is a better way to have this texture layer onto the text AND the effects as well, currently I only know how to do child layers, if there is a better option I'd definitely love to hear it or if I am asking something that isn't doable... As you can see below, when the effects are removed, it's very easy to see the texture, but when the effects are applied it is very much so lost under the effects. Cheers, Aussie
  24. Been watching a few Youtube videos while I wait for my Affinity Designer book to come, and in the process have made a few lil graphics, playing around with child objects, gradients, the add/subtract/divide functions and transparency.
